are not foreclosed to them because so much of what mr. obama said last time around remains true today. our nation is at war against the far-reaching network of violence and hatred. our economy is badly weakened. homes have been lost. jobs shed. businesses shuttered. our health care is too costly. our schools fail too many. >> most of that speech he could give almost word for word again right now because so little has changed. in that speech he talks about wanting to end two wars, too many people are out of work, reaching out to the muslim world, reforming our schools, ending the fiscal crisis, so there's all kinds of redundancies that i think he can't go back to. >> reporter: aides to the president tell fox news his second inaugural will be different but not because he's penned in by stubborn conditionings but to the contrary, because the nation itself is in such a fundamentally different place than the dark days of early '09. one presidential historian who recently interviewed the president for rolling stone magazine counseled mr. obama to use the address to address what the president himself la

of the obama family, said mr. president, you have an awfully big room. my prayer to you is to leverage that power for the stewardship of our nation. as we stand out here, the president will arrive, of course. so will the vice president, along with his family. the next stop will be, as we said, a short drive back across the street basically, crossing just around lafayette park to the white house where they will participate in this congressional coffee that takes place today, congressional leadership will be there as we start to see secret service exiting the church. we anticipate we'll see the president in just a matter of moments. it was remarkable, matt and savannah, to see the security outside this place even before the president arrived. there is pete souza, photographer of the white house. as you see, luis leon, the rector here. we can now see the obama family as they come outside. >> peter, as they do exit the church -- i can hear people cheering in the background -- going back to that point you made where the pastor talked about the president being the pastor in chief, in an arti
